Hoosier Uplands - Scholarship Program
The Hoosier Uplands Scholarship Program was initiated in 1993 by the Hoosier Uplands Board of Directors to promote post-secondary education in the social services, health, and education fields and to be awarded to students who exhibit a financial need. It is offered to one graduating senior from each high school in the five county area we serve. Those counties are Crawford, Lawrence, Martin, Orange, and Washington.
The selection for each student is made by each school's scholarship committee which consists of school staff, or business men or women within the community. Applications are available from the high school guidance counselors, and must be turned in to them by their given deadlines.
As of Fall 2010, Hoosier Uplands has presented a total of 132 graduating students with scholarship awards equaling $162,150.00. To date, the amount of the scholarship is $1,300 per student. Scholarships are funded in part through the Joan Cline Scholarship Fund.
